Manic Street Preachers return with their ninth studio album, Journal For Plague Lovers. The album follows the hugely successful and critically acclaimed 2007 release Send Away The Tigers, and the induction of the band into the NME s Hall Of Fame with their naming as the "NME Godlike Genius" for 2008. Produced by Steve Albini and recorded live at Rockfield Studios in Wales during the Winter of 2008, the album features lyrics left behind by former guitarist Richey Edwards across all 13 new tracks. An original piece of Jenny Saville s art is the cover of Journal for Plague Lovers, whose painting graced the cover of 1994 s The Holy Bible . Musically the band draw on their classic Holy Bible sound with elements of Nirvana s In Utero, as well as a delicate, beautiful acoustic side.

This album was a great return to form for the band. Holy Bible 2.0! Similar, but nuanced and clever in its own way.Published 2 months ago by "mastertriptrap"
I view this album as a sister record to The Holy Bible. It contains Richey's lyrics once more but there's more humour and playfulness in this record. Read morePublished on April 9, 2012 by The Gutless Wonder
Not bad, but I would stick with some of their earlier work unless you want some unnecessary cheesy 90's guitar. Some tracks are great, but others are not so good. Read morePublished on April 21, 2011 by Rachel Robinson

The Street preachers are another band that I have been curious about for a while, but never heard. They are not very well known here in the U.S. Read morePublished on October 12, 2010 by Steven Sly
To be perfectly honest, This is really only 4.5 stars, just because all the songs seem REALLY short. Read morePublished on April 7, 2010 by M Fine

this CD is different than other Manic Street's works.
